Ignite the Way Conference: Loving through Discipleship, Evangelism and Mission:  This one-day conference, open to all ($45), will be held on Saturday, March 2nd from 9:00am-3:30pm.  Guest presenters include the Rev. Jay Sidebotham, Director of Renewal Works and the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, Canon to the Presiding Bishop for Evangelism, Reconciliation and Stewardship of Creation. Bring your ministry team and explore how Jesus’ “way of love” can influence your community.

150th Honorees Gala Banquet: The diocese is planning to honor members of the diocesan family for their faithful service to the diocese at a Gala Banquet on Saturday, March 2, 2018.

A Commemorative Edition highlighting our parishes and ministries is in the works. This is a tangible way of preserving history that at the same time will inform our future as a vibrant community of faith. The Commemorative Edition will also include the Liturgy of Worship for the Celebration Eucharist with the Right Reverend Michael B Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, on March 3, 2019, Hyatt Hotel, Cambridge.

The Celebration Eucharist will mark the close of our year-long 150th anniversary celebration and will include a sermon from the Right Reverend Michael B Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church. The Celebration Eucharist is a free, ticketed event and we hope that all of our parishioners around the Diocese will “join us at church” on this historic Sunday. Tickets will be made available via each of our church offices and at the Bray House in late October.
